A public address system, or PA system, is a system of audio components including speakers and microphones which provides a way to broadcast information over selected and wide areas of a facility and its grounds. For schools, these systems play a critical role in enhancing daily, event, or emergency communications. 

Better Daily and Event Communication 

Each day, school administrators have many things they need to communicate to students or staff in order for the school to run efficiently, such as information about daily events, meetings, student pick-up, and more. 

Effective audio, announcement, and two-way communication systems are essential at all levels of education, and a common trait of highly successful educational institutions. Here are a few of the advantages these systems provide:


  • Swift communication between teachers and administration
  • Between classroom communication without having to leave the classroom unattended
  • Improved audio for events
  • Unified messaging to students regarding daily events

PA Systems and Emergency Communication in Schools

Public address systems have been found to be a critical part of preventing crimes and  extremely valuable in helping ensure the safety of students and staff. 

In a crisis, emergency communication can:


  • Facilitate a tactical response
  • Direct and inform students
  • Instill confidence
  • Impact mood and perception
  • Seek cooperation
  • Mitigate risk


In implementing your PA communication system it is important to discuss the options with a professional. Every facility is different and has unique audio challenges. A professional can evaluate these challenges and apply the most appropriate solutions.
